Title: 15 gallon Spike Brewing Electric System
Post by: rick9591 on April 11, 2018, 07:24:04 PM
Hello All,
I just purchased a 15 gallon electric spike brewing system.

Does anyone have the BEERSMITH equipment profile ?

Thanks

Rick,

I have the 15g system as well and built my profile through trial and error. Happy to share what I have but quite sure how to share it.

I strongly suggest that you make your own weights and measurements to create your own profiles. Your losses are never going to be exactly the same as someone else's. It will save you a lot of frustration.
